drank Razzleberry Rooibos by 52teas
2799 tasting notes

Thank you to VariaTEA for sending me the rest of her sample pouch in our most recent tea trade.

This is a nice rooibos base of mixed green and red rooibos, although it tastes mostly like red rooibos. I can taste some berry flavour (|mostly raspberry). Hints of vanilla, sweet dry hay, minerals (typical rooibos flavours). It is a bit plain, but definitely not a bad cup.

Flavors: Berry, Raspberry, Rooibos, Vanilla

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 1 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

drank Mulberry Magic by DAVIDsTEA

I really enjoyed this hot. Mulberry leaf is one of my favourite flavours, and that macadamia is so toasty and nutty. The hint of vanilla completes it.

drank America's Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA
2799 tasting notes

Thank you to VariaTEA for the sample!

I coldbrewed it this morning (1 tsp leaf, 500 mL cold water, 10 minutes) and really enjoyed it. I can confirm that that “America’s Birthday Cake” (American version) and “Birthday Cake” (Canadian version) taste exactly the same. The only difference is that the US version has star shaped sprinkles of red/white/blue while the Canadian version has normal rod-shaped sprinkles in a rainbow of colours.

Mmm I love the cakey, custard, birthday cake icing, and caramel flavours in this. Just so good.

Flavors: Cake, Caramel, Custard, Pancake Syrup, Rooibos, Sugarcane, Sweet, Vanilla

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

America’s bday cake in theory has toffee. Like you, I thought they tasted the same

Thank you to VariaTEA for the share!

Good green rooibos base with rose petals, green fruity flavours (honey dew, green melon). It is very fragrant, a decent iced drink this evening when it’s too hot to exist above ground.

Flavors: Green Melons, Honeydew, Melon, Rooibos, Rose

Preparation
Iced 1 tsp 20 OZ / 600 ML

drank Cool Cactus by DAVIDsTEA

Sipdown!

It’s too bad this isn’t coming back this year. I have fallen in love with it.

VariaTEA

Della Terra had an AMAZING cactus tea that they discontinued. Then they stopped being a company so I guess that tea is never to be found again. It sucks that this was the last of a tea you love. Perhaps it’ll return in the future….

drank Oolong Châtaigne by Dammann Freres

hmm this is more stone fruits (peach, apricot) and white grape) than nuts and caramel. Maybe it has absorbed some of a neighbouring tea’s flavours.

Profile

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
